THE NATION HOLDS ITS BREATH
BY KEV CAHILL

On the day of the most important football match in Irish history, a young father-to-be is torn between a) standing at his wife’s side to hold her hand and witness the miracle of childbirth, or b) witnessing the miracle of the national team reaching the quarter-finals of the World Cup.

KEV CAHILL

Kev Cahill, after graduating with a math and computer degree from Trinity College Dublin, worked as a DJ for Red Bull, sold smoothies at festivals and had a wholesale fruit company. Then he crashed the van and broke the businesses. This forced him to start working in films, specifically in VFX. He has worked on large budget productions like Game of Thrones, Star Wars VIII and Fantastic Beasts. He was also making some music videos of his own on the side. In 2015 he directed his first short film More Than God, it has screened at over 40 international film festivals and won a bunch of awards. This led him to be selected as one of the Lexus Short Film directors and make his 2nd short film The Nation Holds Its Breath. Kev is now directing commercials and has worked with Oxfam and McDonald’s. He's currently working on his first feature script.
